Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Posted here because it has nothing to do with Europe.  :-)

The governor of Mississippi said a couple of days ago that the power of prayer would be sufficient in his state. Mississippi is, of course, the state at the top of pretty much all of the "social problem" rankings.
During my first State of the State address, I shared Romans 12:12. I believe it gives each of us a powerful charge in these uncertain times: "Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer." That is what I will personally strive to do as we address this pandemic.

The governor of Colorado said today that we are under a "stay at home" policy. Essential business allowed to stay open include health care providers, bankers, grocers, child care facilitators and shelter operators. No word on enforcement regime. Conservatives are outraged.
Lawmakers angry over stay-at-home order want Douglas County to sever ties with Tri-Health, but Dougco commissioner says decision rests with health department

Following an AZ thread, I found an equally hilarious twitter thread stuffed with mind-boggled NJ residents who recently discovered that their gov had decreed every business an "essential business." Except golf courses.

I surmise ripening expectation amid states' leadership of Trump's announcement "15 Days to Slow the Spread" is concluding; also the ahh influence of Gov. Larry "mag-lev" Hogan, president of nga.org. Two weeks ago he boasted in every emergency presser that he and the 50 gov had consulted (by teleconf) with their leader Corona Czar VP Rev. Mr Pence at the WH as to how best to proceed.

Reading his latest OE in full it appeared to me that the cage doors of the MD zoo are open, too, but for the most part few dare tread outside their lanes. In any case, Larry has already detailed the landscape with  National Guard units, fussing with "free" meals and medical bivouac presumably better acquitted than Ebola Edition kit, for an inevitable SURGE "presumable" COVID19 infirm.
